Allows importing, generating, keeping, modifying, and exporting secrets in CORE.
By default, the max plain-text size of a secret is 4000 Bytes. To change this limit, refer to the static system setting inSystem Static Properties.

Each row in the table presents the following attributes:
- Name of the secret.
- UID - of the secret.
- Groups - Membership in Key-Groups.
- Last changed - timestamp of the last change.
-  - see Commands.
→ The New Secret dialog appears.
- Name - mandatory. See Name and Description.
- Description - optional.
- Groups - As needed, specify membership in the key groups. See Membership in Key-Groups. You can select the group name from the drop-down list or create it on the spot by typing a new name. In such a case, the new key group name shall be added to the list of the available key groups.
- Secret generation method ▼
- Entered manually.
- Generated by the system.
To generate a secret that complies with NIST.SP.800-63b password randomness and complexity requirements:
- Select Generate random secret - to assure the randomness of characters.
- Specify the minimum length - to comply with the minimum password length requirements.
- Check the Must include box - to ensure the presence of a special character(s) in the random mix of the upper- and lower-case letters and digits.
The system allows reusing the same secret name in a partition unless the Enforce-unique setting specifies the mandatory name uniqueness. If you choose to reuse the name, accessing the secret using its name may produce ambiguous results.
The absence of the description does not violate the Enforce-unique requirement.
Every secret is a permanent member of the
default key group. This membership can't be revoked.
